2021-2022 update

July 15 Update: In-person learning, five days a week

Bethel Families,

We hope that you have been enjoying the summer months and are taking time to recharge and reconnect with family and friends.

In an effort to help you plan for the upcoming school year, we’re reaching out with some brief updates.

In-person learning: 

The Bethel School District will return to full time (five days a week) in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. 

In its most recent update to the Ready Schools Safe Learners Resiliency Framework, the Oregon Department of Education, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority recommended that all students return to full-time, in-person instruction. The framework also acknowledges the complications the COVID-19 virus presents in school settings. 

Health and safety protocols:

Details regarding district health and safety protocols, including mask-wearing, physical distancing, cohort grouping, and others are still being considered and finalized. We are working closely with our District Nursing Team, Lane County Public Health, neighboring school districts, and ODE to inform decision making and support schools in health and safety planning to meet community-specific needs. Bethel expects to be provided with additional guidance from ODE and OHA July 22 and will make decisions shortly thereafter. Additional information will be shared with families following that update.

Future communications

Consistent updates will be provided to families approximately every two weeks, pending no major changes or need for communication. 

Have questions? Feel free to reach out to Bethel Communications Director, Alisha Dodds, at

Enjoy your summer!

Familias Bethel,

Espero que haya disfrutado de los meses de verano y se esté tomando el tiempo para recargar las energías y reconectarse con familiares y amigos.

En un esfuerzo por ayudarlo a planificar el próximo año escolar, Nos gustaria comunicarles algunas de las actualizaciones breves que se an echo.

Aprendizaje en persona:

El Distrito Escolar de Bethel volverá al aprendizaje en persona a tiempo completo (5 días a la semana) para el año escolar 2021-2022.

En su actualización más reciente del Marco de Resiliencia para Estudiantes Seguros de Ready Schools, el Departamento de Educación de Oregón, en asociación con la Autoridad de Salud de Oregón, recomendó que todos los estudiantes regresen a la instrucción en persona a tiempo completo. El marco también reconoce las complicaciones que presenta el virus COVID-19 en los entornos escolares.

Protocolos de seguridad y salud:

Los detalles sobre los protocolos de salud y seguridad del distrito, incluido el uso de máscaras, el distanciamiento físico, la cohorte y otros, aún se están considerando y finalizando. Bethel espera recibir orientación adicional de ODE y OHA a finales de este mes (22 de julio) y tomará decisiones poco después. Trabajaremos en estrecha colaboración con nuestro equipo de enfermería del distrito, la salud pública del condado de Lane, los distritos escolares vecinos y ODE para informar la toma de decisiones y apoyar a las escuelas en la planificación de la salud y la seguridad para satisfacer las necesidades específicas de la comunidad.

Comunicaciones futuras:

Se proporcionarán actualizaciones constantes a las familias aproximadamente cada dos semanas, en espera de que no haya cambios importantes o necesidad de comunicación.

¡Disfrute su verano!
